Progress in BPSD research: analyzing individual BPSD might hold the key to better support caregivers

  • Nicola T. Lautenschlager (a1) (a2)
Abstract

Behavioral and Psychological Symptoms of Dementia (BPSD) or neuropsychiatric symptoms occur in more or less every person with dementia at some stage during the illness. They often have a significant impact on caregiver well-being and vice versa – caregivers response to BPSD can impact on the well-being of the care recipient with dementia (Feast et al., 2016A). The relationship between caregiver and care-recipient factors when it comes to BPSD is complex and more detailed research is needed to be able to progress to more effective interventions and support.
